El Museo del Barrio is pleased to welcome visitors to the second rotation of the Permanent Collection exhibition, Something Beautiful: Reframing La Colección

Something Beautiful, which initially opened to the public in May, is the Museum’s most ambitious display of its Permanent Collection in over twenty years. Organized by Rodrigo Moura, Chief Curator; Susanna V. Temkin, Curator; and Lee Sessions, Permanent Collection Associate Curator, the second rotation expands the exhibition’s scope, showcasing approximately 150 additional artworks by some 60 artists, including 50 new acquisitions that have entered the collection within the last two years.

The second rotation of Something Beautiful is organized into nine sections and four artist spotlights. Sections include “Afro-diasporic Modernities,” “Figureheads,” “Material Construction,” “Así es la Vida,” “Colors, Names,” “Tropical Extraction,” “Arpilleras,” “Craft Crossroads,” and “Ocama Aracoel,” which remains on view from the first rotation of the exhibition.

The four artist spotlights feature the works of Edgardo Giménez (b. 1942, Santa Fe, Argentina; lives in Buenos Aires, Argentina), Sophie Rivera (b. 1938, The Bronx, NY–2021, The Bronx), Pepón Osorio (b. 1955, Santurce, Puerto Rico; lives in Philadelphia, PA), and Jaime Davidovich (b. 1936, Buenos Aires, Argentina –2016, New York, NY).
